A Hot Slice Of Stupid

, , , | Right | February 4, 2018

(I’ve been doing my job for a long time, and have had dozens of versions of this conversation. [Customer #1] storms back into the store a few minutes after getting his pizza.)

Customer #1: “Why does my pizza only have eight slices?”

Me: “Because that’s how we cut them?”

Customer #1: *gesturing to [Customer #2], who ordered after him* “Why did you tell her that a medium has eight? Why does my large pizza have eight?”

Me: “We cut both pizzas the same way.”

Customer #1: “But what’s the difference, then?”

Me: “They’re different sizes. The large is more pizza. We only cut them the same way.”

(He looks at me like he knows I am trying to swindle him but he can’t quite figure out how, and leaves.)

Customer #2: “Does that happen often?”

Me: “More than you’d think.”
